Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Love the design and beautiful materials of this hotel, but feel the function of the room design is lacking. Bed is so big with the cabinets at footwall leave a tight squeeze for maneuvering around. There's no place for luggage so it sits on floor where you trip on it. Nespresso machine is finicky to use- refill water tank, must put the pod in just right. Staff were all very nice, but there seems to be communication issues internally- got a call asking if room service was mistakenly delivered to us. Turn down service was forgotten 2nd night so I had to call but then staff person thought there was only 1 person in our room. Breakfast bar is excellent. There is an instruction booklet on how to use the lights, temp, coffee maker. No tablet in room- maybe this has been replaced with the regular tv remote. The overall vibe in this area of town seems to be a bit pretentious and not as down to earth as other places we stayed on our visit.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled as a couple

You will go a long way to find another hotel to match The Thief. Wonderful staff, great room, buffet breakfast that can't be beaten, challenging art, central location, warm lounge. Considering the price of everything in Norway this is real value.

Awesome hotel! Huge breakfast buffet with the best quality iv'e ever seen! A little pricy, but the room quality and service makes this hotel worth every penny. Prime location in the city of Oslo, a short walk from everything.

Small and a bit dark rooms with restricted seaview. High standard. Really nice area with boats, culture, restaurants and outdoor swimming opportunities. No cars.
Really nice entrance. Spa is almost without windows and not worth the visit.

Greetings and many thanks for your review of The Thief . As you mentioned were located on a very vibrant and dynamic peninsular . There are plenty of places to swim around the hotel and that is a testament to the cleanliness of the Oslo Fjord ..

Very much looking forward to your return

Very good hotel, in the new trendy area of Oslo, the stay gives you a free entrance to the museum of contemporary art across the street.
Food was good, breakfast fresh and well assorted. The bar is a bit of a let down due to its strange location with no view or cozy feeling. The room was spacious, nice view, comfortable. Bathroom a bit tiny in comparison to the room and no tub and no day light which could have been done nicely. The gym is well equipped despite its rather small size. A hotel to recommend.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor and view on the ocean

Greetings and many thanks for your review of The Thief . As you mentioned were located in the "trendy" new district called Tjuvholmen which is located very close to the city center on the Oslo Fjord . Were also very happy to be a sponsor of the Astrup Fearnley museum that allows us to give free access to all our hotel guests
Very glad that you had such an enjoyable stay and looking forward to your return

I stayed here just for 1 night for a business trip and I was really impressed by the hotel.
Good position (central location - 5 min far from the city centre walking), excellent bar and restaurant, good breakfast and beautiful rooms with a view!

What a wonderful find! Whether you are there on business in Oslo or you are with friends/family, this place is the best. The location is superb as it is on the new reclaimed land area, with bars, restaurants on the marina all very close at hand. The city is only a 5-10min walk. The hotel itself is decadent, with a lot of lovely touches and helpful service to ensure you have a great stay.
